I was surprised to learn this morning that the conservative political party in Britain is trying to move legislation to support same-sex marriage!

It's quite amazing and I recommend the story in the Washington Post to you. Prime Minister David Cameron, of the conservative party in Britain supports gay marriage because he believes it's the right thing to do and that it has everything to do with equal rights. The British have struggled with understanding what it really means to be a conservative and they, like American conservatives, believe that the less the government meddles in and regulates the lives of the people the better off the people will be.
It's something to think about and reading the Washington Post story will help you understand why we have such a difference in America.
And, oh, by the way, the liberal party in Britain is not so sure that same-sex marriage is really the way to go. They appear to oppose this initiative of the conservatives.
Does it make your head spin? Give it all some thought! The difference between the Brits and us appears to be the lack of a strong fundamental and ultra-conservative Christian movement over there.
These are just some thoughts from the road. I'll be back at my own desk on Monday morning.
